§ 5804. Execution of confinement. (a) Place of confinement.--A sentence of confinement adjudged by a military court, whether or not the sentence includes discharge or dismissal, and whether or not the discharge or dismissal has been executed, may be carried into execution by confinement in any place of confinement under the control of any of the forces of the State military forces or in any county or State jail, prison or other place of confinement. Persons so confined in a jail or prison are subject to the same discipline and treatment as persons confined or committed to the jail or prison by the courts of this Commonwealth or of any political subdivision thereof. (b) Authority to require hard labor.--The omission of the words "hard labor" from any sentence or punishment of a court- martial adjudging confinement does not deprive the authority executing that sentence or punishment of the power to require hard labor as a part of the punishment. (c) Duty of county prison officials.--The keepers, officers, and wardens of county jails or prisons under section 5205 (relating to confinement in jails) shall receive persons ordered into confinement before trial and persons committed to confinement by a military court and shall confine them according to law. No such keeper, officer, or warden may require payment of any fee or charge for so receiving or confining a person.
